The Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing is ringing in the new year with an exciting milestone: our fifth anniversary. Over the past five years, the institute has grown tremendously in size, research output, and reputation. With nearly 100 faculty and staff members, postdoctoral fellows, students, and interns, ISGMH is the largest university-wide institute in the world focused exclusively on researching the health and wellbeing of the LGBTQ community. Our research continues to address important and understudied areas of LGBTQ health, and ISGMH faculty published more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals in the past year alone. As we continue to grow as an institute, our commitment to supporting the LGBTQ community through health research only grows stronger.
In celebration of our fifth anniversary, ISGMH is hosting a year-long Leaders in LGBTQ Health lecture series throughout 2020. The series will focus on the last 25 years of LGBTQ health research and activism, as well as the people who made—and continue to make—groundbreaking strides in the field. All Leaders in LGBTQ Health lectures take place at Northwestern University and will be open to the public. For those who cannot attend in person, lectures will also be available via livestream.
